It would be helpful for anyone whom is integrating ofBiz with an external application to be able to expose the externalId property in the Party entity.
The tasks to complete include:
- Update the findparty.ftl to include the prompt/form input field for the external id
- Update the PartyServices.findParty() method to include the logic to handle the externalId argument
- Add new method getPartyFromExternalId to PartyServices
- Add getPartyFromExternalId service definition in Party servicedef/services_view.xml
- Add misc local strings to UI label resource file
Need to determine if the External Id: input form field should be configuarable so that it only appears if feature is enabled.
